Jennifer Esposito Replaces Alyssa Milano on ABC's Mistresses

Former Blue Bloods actress Jennifer Esposito is set to board ABC’s Mistresses this summer. The Taxi Brooklyn star has landed a major series regular role following Alyssa Milano’s departure at the end of season 2. (Milano quit the series when production moved from LA to Vancouver.)

Esposito will play Calista, described by ABC as “uber-fabulous and larger-than-life, with a wicked sense of humor and style. Calista is the Creative Director of a luxury fashion brand and has the high-class socialite lifestyle that goes with it. Look beneath the surface, however, and we see her loneliness too – a woman whose fun eccentricities cloak a darker, more devious nature. Calista will become Joss’ (Jes Macallan) friend, mentor, and surrogate sister – drawing Joss deeper and deeper into a world of secrets and betrayal.”

So far so good. The only thing that remains is how the writers will explain Savi’s (Milano) sudden absence.

More as we have it.
